It is not what you want, it is what you need that you should strive for
Right now I feel I want security in life so that I feel safe, comfortable and happy.
But what I really need is to grow. Growing helps you to stretch yourself; taking on new challenges and beliefs. When you change yourself for the better everything looks different.
Where are you supposed to be?
Every time you think that things are not where you want them to be, you are about to grow.
Things should not be status quo. Life would be very boring without some changes to shake you up.
There should be movement in your life. Places where you are not comfortable along with feelings that are not very pleasant. You ride the roller coaster of life; up and down you go with periods of happiness, a middle ground where you are just okay, and those bottom days where you feel like staying in bed.
When you rid yourself of those negative feelings that is when you become more mindful of your thoughts; shaking off those negative ones like you are dusting off your shoulder and replacing them with some optimism.
You are there
Knowing that you are where you are supposed to be every single moment of life brings you to this moment right now where you may not be happily planning your next step because you do not know where that step will be, and that is alright for now, in this moment. Do not plan too far ahead of yourself because things can change in a moment’s notice.
Be happy in this moment, where you are right now; smiling, talking with friends, meeting someone new.
